    I'm having a problem with my gf's 93 Accord. It has the F22A6 in it. The problem is that it's leaking oil from where the oil filter connects to the block. I checked to see if the problem was improper installation of the oil filter and the filter is on correctly. It seems that there is a short shaft where the filter connects (not where it screws on but where the filter tightens too) and the leak is there. Any suggestions as to the problem or idea's. The oil is leaking rapidly and onto the exhaust pipes and smokes badly. I need to get this fixed quickly because if I don't my gf will be driving my sr powered 240 and she scares me with her driving! Thanks.

    check to make sure there aren't two gaskets...
    sometimes they get stuck to the block and the new one = leak

    or maybe the new gasket was shat upon...
